Recruiting exceptional leaders for mission-driven organizations.

President and Chief Executive Officer East Providence, RI

East Bay Community Action Program (EBCAP), a non-profit organization that provides an array of comprehensive, community-based health and human services to families in need in Rhode Island’s East Bay, seeks a strategic, entrepreneurial, and community-oriented leader to be its next President and Chief Executive Officer (CEO). In partnership with the Board of Directors, this leader will continue to assure the relevancy of EBCAP’s programming and services and grow the organization’s impact and relevance to its diverse constituents. EBCAP's mission is one of service to the community. As such, the CEO will lead the organization by centering client voices and experiences and creating meaningful improvements to the health and well-being of those it serves. The CEO will also be a strong internal leader, exemplifying the organization’s mission and able to develop and manage a progressive and efficient organization while ensuring the professional growth and safety of EBCAP’s dedicated staff. They will have the opportunity to build upon EBCAP’s successes and directly shape the future landscape of health and human services.

Since its founding and subsequent organizational growth, EBCAP has striven to be recognized as the premier health and human services agency in the East Bay of Rhode Island by focusing on strengthening communities and uplifting individuals. Acting as a bridge to self-reliance for those living at or below the poverty line, EBCAP helps children, youth, families, adults, and elders who might not otherwise get their social, emotional, and health care needs met. Through a multitude of programming, covering Health Services, Community-Based Programs, and Youth and Educational Programs, EBCAP seeks to help communities and individuals become healthy, self-determined, and empowered to enact change. Over the years, EBCAP has learned to adapt and modify its care and treatment services to meet the needs of a changing and diverse population. Its next leader will continue that work.

The next CEO will bring a strong service-centered vision that connects with EBCAP’s mission as well as a sharp administrative acumen. EBCAP offers over 20 unique programs and services across 28 locations, has a current operating budget of $44 million, and employs nearly 500 individuals. This leader will oversee the evaluation and continued growth and evolution of services and programs while creating opportunities for greater integration and collaboration. Working alongside their leadership team, the CEO will continue to refine organizational structures and processes to ensure that all areas are mission-aligned and equipped for success. They will act as the face of the organization to current and prospective funders and partners, strengthening existing relationships and forging new ones through a compelling organizational story and brand strategy. This new leader must be a champion for a strong, stable, and diverse workforce both within and outside the organization.
